BHUBANESWAR: Revenue secretary Taradatt on Friday said the taskforce, headed by him, submitted its report to the government on October 31. It was constituted to investigate the allocation process of plots and houses under discretionary quota (DQ) in Bhubaneswar and Cuttack

He, however, refused to reveal the findings, saying the government would take the final call.

On August 2, the state government had constituted the taskforce after the comptroller and auditor general found indiscriminate allotment of lands and houses under the DQ.

The taskforce was asked to probe all allotments under DQ by the Bhubaneswar Development Authority, Cuttack Development Authority, general administration department and Odisha State Housing Board from January 1995 to July 2014, official sources said. It was asked to submit its findings and recommendations to the government within four months.

According to the sources, the panel found allocation of 1,500 plots and flats under DQ. It has recommended action against violators.

Housing and urban development minister Pushpendra Singh Deo said he is not aware of the report being submitted. "If it has been submitted, we would examine it and take necessary action," he said.

Senior BJP leader Bijoy Mohapatra on Friday slammed the state government for sitting on the report. "When the taskforce has already submitted the report, why is the government not revealing the findings? Mohapatra questioned. Mohapatra said the government is under a cloud.
